As Luck Would Have It… blog #4 – The Westfalia Project
Gilberto is a baker, and a really good baker at that, but that means he keeps crazy work hours. Three days would pass before we would find him at home to talk to him about his van. We were nervous that it had already been sold, but as luck would have it, there were no takers. Maybe it’s prospective buyers were intimidated by the amount of work that would have to go into it just like we were, or maybe they dismissed it as being a total dog pile. Regardless, we had come to terms that yes, this would be a big project, and maybe it is a total dog pile, but if anyone had the resources to pimp such a ride, it would be us. Between Brian’s collection of blown motors and his aptitude for all things mechanical, there’d be no reason why he wouldn’t be able to scrap something amazing together. I had actually been looking forward to using my new sewing machine for something a little more useful than a lap quilt for Grandma, so I’d try my hand at upholstery and tent making. The rest we could nickle and dime until it’s completion, so it seemed like we could make it happen. The VW Gods were smiling on us that day, because Gilberto sold it to us for a really good price.
